Well how did the bear/elk hunt go?Hey all,
I am a newer hunter, and have yet to harvest my first big game animal. My sources for learning are podcasts and YouTube.
I will have Colorado OTC archery elk and bear tags this September, and for part of the season I will be solo hunting. I want to prioritize my bear tag with habitat selection, and would love to have a rug if I harvest a bear. I have been watching how-to videos on field dressing and skinning a bear in the field. Other than the slim chance of me harvest the animal next to my truck, it seems like a daunting task skinning and retrieving a bear solo in the September heat. Am I biting off more than I can chew trying to do this solo for my first big game animal? Any recommendations for retrieving if I’m miles from my truck?
Thanks for any advice!
I got some bulls in close, but I only had a cow tag. Was a cool experience to see the practice on my calling finally pay off, and know there were elk in the area, but didn’t get close to any cows.Well how did the bear/elk hunt go?
